3/5 82% Eden (2015) "A soundtrack of 40 chosen tunes and sideline looks at Daft Punk's genesis makes Hansen-Lve's assured fourth feature a heady trip for all ex-ravers. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 23, 2015
4/5 91% Dear White People (2014) "Stylish, sleek, sharp and almost glib, this terrific debut by writer/director Justin Simien is a streamlined satire that swaps subtlety for jaw-dropping honesty. " ‐ Radio Times

4/5 94% Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2012) "This is one documentary that's a must-see for anyone interested in film history, or seeing hope and enthusiasm triumph critical and financial success. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 1, 2015
4/5 81% Man Up "Man Up is heaped with wit and insight, and its smart script, sharp direction and crisp performances, all set against buzzing London streets that denizens will recognise, give it the feel of a frisky romantic version of After Hours. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted May 28, 2015

Posted May 8, 2015
3/5 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "An unusual, thoughtful drama that takes a novel look at the fountain of youth, and that afterwards will have those seeking nothing more than a little light entertainment commenting, 'Well, that was quite nice, wasn't it?' " ‐ The List
Posted May 4, 2015
4/5 100% Dark Horse (2015) "More stirring than National Velvet, less sentimental than Champions, Dark Horse never contrives to make us cry. And, like a well-told tale at the pub, it grips from start to finish. " ‐ The List
Posted Apr 13, 2015
4/5 85% John Wick (2014) "This is a sleek, wet, near noir, with neon and shadows aplenty. Essentially, it's really rather good. " ‐ The List
Posted Apr 6, 2015
3/5 29% Get Hard (2015) "In this occasionally brilliant, if somewhat uneven, showcase of speedy plotting and even speedier improvisation, Hart and Ferrell's chemistry is such that it seems certain to pair them up in the future. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 25, 2015

Posted Feb 9, 2015
3/5 51% The Interview (2014) "As a spoof on popular culture and politics, it's naughty, dumb and patchily funny. And while Franco chews the scenery, Rogen and Park display excellent comic timing. " ‐ Radio Times

Posted Jan 5, 2015
4/5 90% The Imitation Game (2014) "This beautifully designed and photographed period drama, adapted from Andrew Hodges' book The Enigma by debut screenwriter Graham Moore, centres on three important points of Turing's life. " ‐ The Arts Desk
Posted Jan 4, 2015
99% Starred Up (2014) "This is a film that edifies and also gives hope -- even if that glimmer is currently beyond the realms of reality. " ‐ The Arts Desk
Posted Jan 2, 2015
3/5 27% Annie (2014) "Wallis keeps things watchable, exuding real screen presence. However, even with talented singer Foxx onboard, there isn't a single memorable rendition of the familiar tunes, and 'Tomorrow' hangs around like a kitchen odour. " ‐ The List
Posted Dec 22, 2014

Posted Oct 17, 2014
3/5 81% Testament Of Youth (2015) "Testament of Youth is tasteful and lyrical, but it still packs a punch. " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 16, 2014
4/5 35% Before I Go to Sleep (2014) "Joffe conjures superb performances from the perfect cast: this is Firth and Kidman at their best. A sexy, chilling and stylish trick of the light, this psychological thriller knows exactly what it's doing. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Sep 5, 2014

Posted Jun 3, 2013

Posted Feb 8, 2013
4/5 79% Quartet (2013) "There is nothing startling or challenging about Quartet, but it's a delightful film that touches on themes of ageing and the enduring importance of art. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jan 3, 2013
